Latest research finding reveals 300000 year old human skull with

Researchers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences' Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology have recently announced an exciting new update to their research on a hominin human skull discovered at the Hualongdong Site in East China's Anhui Province - the 300,000-year-old skull carries many facial features of modern humans. 

The skull, labeled by researchers as Hualongdong No.6, carries some facial features of the Homo erectus of the middle Pleistocene age. The skull, whose appearance has been restored by researchers, was surprisingly found to lack some of the facial characteristics that are commonly seen in middle Homo erectus and ancient hominids such as wide nasal bones, low upper face and obvious protruding jaws. 

Instead, researchers found the skull carries some other facial features that are akin to the early modern human beings and modern human beings such as a shallow supraorbital sulcus and deep brow area. Additionally, its rather flat facial structure is believed to be closer to the look of modern East Asians. 

It also has a very forward incisive foramen, which is considered a typical characteristic of early modern humans. 

Researchers reconstructed physical and virtual models of the HualongDong No.6 skull using manual measurements and CT scanning, as well as using sculptural restoration techniques to recreate its appearance, with the final product resulting in a rather young looking man.
